Bride Kate Middeton is elegant and feminine on her wedding day

Kate Middleton‘s long-awaited wedding dress was finally revealed as she stepped out of her car at Westminster Abbey to marry Prince William at precisely 11am this morning.

The bride chose a vintage-style gown designed by Alexander McQueen‘s successor Sarah Burton with long lace sleeves and a corset top, which flared from the waist with wide pleats. 

Kate looked beautiful in a diamond tiara, elegant teardrop earrings and a sheer lace-edged veil.

Her half-up half-down hair fell elegantly in loose curls, while she kept her make-up natural and fresh-faced.

The 29-year-old’s modest train was carried up the aisle by Maid Of Honour and sister Pippa Middleton, who wore an elegant short-sleeved silk ivory gown.
